Paying for Medical School Through Service
piggy_bank.jpg
One of the frequently asked questions we get from aspiring medical students is "How will I pay for medical school?" Nearly 80 percent of graduating students reported having outstanding educational loans at the end of medical school, according to the most recent AAMC Medical School Graduation Questionnaire. Some students who want to borrow less, or who want to have some or all of their loans forgiven, might want to consider providing medical service for a particular organization, employer, or program after medical school (or licensure). In return for their service, they receive the benefit of loan forgiveness or loan repayment. You might not be aware of some of these service commitments that provide loan forgiveness or repayment, but they can significantly offset the cost of a medical education.
